Playa De La Arena Weather

One reason why holidays to Tenerife are ever-popular with vacationers is the weather, and Playa de la Arena is no exception!

Playa de la Arena holidays boast Tenerife's cleanest beaches - amazing swathes of volcanic black silt jutting serenely into the miles of surrounding blue. The great overhead monoliths of the Gigantes mountain range are among Tenerife's most spectacular sights, with equally amazing panoramas of the hinterland from their cliffs.


There's a wealth of local markets nearby - the Wednesday Farmer's Market at San Juan, the African-themed bazaar at Alcala, plus plenty of Hispanic festivity on offer all year round - from the Lenten Carnival at Los Gigantes for pageantry and paella to more solemn Christmas commemorations.


Go on a jaunt through the monolithic mountains of Los Gigantes overhead, day trips on the winemaking regions of the central island, or journeys into the villages nearby, such as Puerto Santiago for some local life and architecture. That's if you don't fancy diving, snorkelling or surfing away your holiday on the azure coast. And don't forget the Mount Teide National Park for a look-in at some of Tenerife's unique flora and fauna.


Holidays to Playa de la Arena are especially popular among families and couples for the area's blue-flag beach, laid-back bars and romantic atmosphere, but some of the island's amazing clubbing and nightlife can be found to the south, in the coastal resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa De Las Americas, home to more all-night bars, discos and clubs than is decent!
